The Ligue 1 champions began their Champions League campaign a with a 3-2 defeat to Jurgen Klopp's men a Anfield earlier this week.

Jean-Pierre Papin, who won the Champions League with AC Milan, was not impressed with PSG's front three against the Premier League outfit.

“With PSG, they’re not heroes, they’re egos,” the former Marseille man told Le Parisien.

“At some point, whatever your status is, you have to serve the team.

“There’s a difference between stars we see abroad and those we have in France.

“In France, we’ve got the impression that they’re impossible to manage. Why can Liverpool put their players into line and not here?

“When Neymar was playing with Barcelona, he defended from time to time.”
